    Answered . Assuming that you are represented by counsel, you should be addressing this question to your attorney. It is very important to have good communication both ways with a lawyer.

    If you are not represented, add a comment and I will answer more fully.

    Answered . Generally speaking, I would think you have to answer these questions.(If you are the plaintiff). Interrogatories are part of the discovery process, and the defendant is usually entitled to get this type of information because it may lead to other things that are relevant to the defense of their case. As my colleagues say, you should discuss this with your attorney. If you do not provide this information, I assume the defense attorney will file a motion and asked the court to compel you to answer this. I assume the court will grant this motion. Again, you should discuss this with your own attorney.

    Answered . You don't mention whether you are the plaintiff or the defendant. But either way this is an issue for your lawyer to resolve. If he or she objects to certain questions they can state so, and the other side can decide whether to go to court to force you to answer.

    Answered . I suggest that you ask this question to the attorney representing you in the litigation. Information about past and current employment are fairly standard and generally need to be answered. Your attorney may not be inclined to provide your Social Security number, however, due to many new Medicare reporting requirements by the insurance industry, the Social Security number is becoming more relevant, but not necessarily because of anything having to do directly with the case, but rather with lien satisfaction issues after the case is over.
